A degree in economics builds a foundation for success in a wide range of corporate, nonprofit, and public sector careers, and serves as ideal preparation for graduate work in economics, management, business, law, and other fields.
The Economics Department recommends that students complete their core requirements (100-level and 200-level courses) as early as possible. This strategy will not only make the more advanced courses easier to handle, but will give the student flexibility in planning course schedules in the third and fourth year of study.
A minimum of eleven courses is required for the major. Students completing the major in economics must take the following:
